Kabul, Afghanistan (SatireWorld.com)
An Air Force F-16 scrambled from allied forces Bagram Air Base today as American AWAC radar planes picked up a strange ‘bogey’ heading over the Kush mountain range from the Pakistan border areas.
An Air Force F-16C interceptor was directed to the source of the mysterious radar signature.

Upon a visual inspection of the suspected enemy aircraft from a nearby CIA drone, General Alfred ‘Bootsy’ Motors ordered the target to be shot down, making this encounter the first Taliban dogfight with an American fighter aircraft so far in the war.
Described as an advanced Iranian design, the single-seater was hit by a burst of 30mm cannon fire. Within moments the craft fell from the sky.
Lt. Colonel Amos ‘Peckerwood’ Hall is credited with shooting down the enemy craft. During the debreifing after the engagement, Peckerwood said the ill-fated Taliban pilot briefly deployed his baggy pants in an attempt to parachute safely to the ground, but an over abundance of heavy AK-47 magazines caused the pants to rapidly deflate, dashing his chances of a safe landing.
The Taliban craft was recovered by US Special Forces and, after dry cleaning and patchwork on several of the holes, will be on display on the floor in front of General Motor’s desk.
